Add an Online Chat
Give your website users the option to connect with you using an online chat window. This works similarly to texting or messaging with someone. Online chat functionality can also show predetermined messages during off work hours, and take a message for you if desired.
Show an Alert or Message
Let your customers know how Covid-19 is affecting your business, whether you’re open, providing alternative services etc. This can be as easy as adding a note to your home page or something more sophisticated like a banner across the top of your website.
Offer Online Shopping
If possible allow your customers to shop online and have your products shipped. While not possible for every business, online stores provide a convenient way for users to purchase your products from their home. There are endless customizable options for selling online including allowing local pickup, virtual or downloadable products, subscription services etc.
If your business has had to shut down or has drastically changed the way you work, your website can still help.
If you’re home and have some spare time, take a look at your website and consider some updates. Get a boost when your business reopens by having a well-organized plan for marketing. Add new content to your website, update photo galleries, add a blog etc.
Add New Content
Add new content about your products and services. The more content the better and the more meaningful and keyword driven the better for Google and your search ranking. Add text, photos, videos and more.
